Primaries select Republicans for June special election

Posted: Updated:

MADISON - A pair of primary elections Tuesday have determined the candidates in two special legislative elections in June.


Jon Plumer was the top vote getter in a field of four Republicans running in the 42nd Assembly District. He will face Democrat Ann Groves Lloyd of Lodi.

The 42nd Assembly District includes most of Columbia County, the northwest part of Dodge County and parts of Dane, Marquette, Green Lake and Fond du Lac counties. 

Plumer faced Republicans Colleen Locke-Murphy, Darren Schroeder and Spencer Zimmerman.  Plumer, a karate school owner and Lodi town board member, has the party's backing.

In the District 1 Senate race in northeast Wisconsin, State Rep. Andre Jacque defeated Alex Renard 4,369 to 4,039. Jacque is one of the Assembly's most conservative members. Renard, the operations manager at his family's Green Bay machine shop, had pledged to work for free this year if elected.

Jacque will face Democrat Caleb Frostman. Gene Rubinstein of Pardeeville is also running as an Independent.

The seats came open when Gov. Scott Walker appointed the incumbents to his administration.
